Conan, I've got something for your dog Triumph
It's interesting that Uncle Larry finds a way to pin Steve Moore's injuries on Brian Burke while also calling the respected GM "a bully." In my mind, there certainly is a difference between challenging "the team to get Moore" (if that is what was said) and the utter imbecilic actions of Todd Bertuzzi. But, in the land of the NY Post, renowned for its gossip pages, subtle distinctions are hardly par for the course. Not when you can make ridiculous accusations in the hopes that someone, anyone, is going to take notice.
Perhaps Brooks may want to run his columns by the publication's lawyer, lest he also end up having to peddle his loathsome "Burke is the devil" act in court.
What did Burke and Crawford say to their team and when did they say it? Once we learn that under oath and under penalty of perjury, we'll know whether Burke — not to mention Crawford — as any future whatsoever in the league beyond his current role on Canadian TV and radio as an NHL mouthpiece [sic].Right. Two of the more successful hockey men in the NHL are going to have their careers sunk by the actions of Todd Bertuzzi. Let's put this one in the 'ridiculous assertions' pile with all of the rest of the last decade's incongruous rantings.
Speaking of sinking careers, it's any wonder this beacon of wonderful journalism didn't meet with an editor's delete key, what for that seamless shift from the Steve Moore case to talking about ESPN and watching players on the bench. Then again, when was making sense part of the program.
Get over here quick Triumph.
